Sounds like you need a new coil pack (it comes with a new wire attached) The old one is either broken somewhere inside or the terminal at the ens has pulled loose. When you pull it off and put it back, it makes contact to start.
Yes it can. On the head of the arm if you look carefully where the needle (to give it's correct name -stylus) is. What it fits into is a cartridge. If you can see letters or numbers on it that will be the type. If you put that into Google it should find it. You should find if it is possible to buy the stylus with or without the cartridge. Though it's often cheaper to buy both. The cartridge will either be screwed onto the head or just clipped on someway. You will find four wires attached to the cartridge. These will have to be removed if you have to replace the cartridge. Make a note of how each wire attaches to the cartridge. As long as you can get a cartridge to fit the headshell you can use any magnetic cartridge for the job. All you would need to do with a different cartridge is adjust the weight to apply the correct pressure to the stylus.
If the cartridge doesn't have any number etc on it, put the make/model number of the turntable into Google adding cartridge/stylus.
First check that the amp is working by putting your finger on the imputs at the back. You should get a buzz on each channel. Or disconect the wires to the cartridge, with the turntable connected to the amp and the amp on, touch the loose wires (you won't get a shock). You should hear the buzz on both channels with two of the wires (left & right). If you don't the pre-amp for the cartridge in the amp has failed. Will be a single IC that's gone, found by following the wires back from the deck imputs inside the amp.
If it buzzers then the cartridge has gone.
I just had this same problem (cartridge on left). Something had broken that was holding the little metal wire in place--the one that sticks out along the bottom where your cartridge goes but apparently moves to the side when you install the cartridge. My guess is that this wire may make some sort of electrical connection that indicates when the cartridge is all the way it (if it doesn't move--or if it is broken--it doesn't make the connection and it thinks something is wrong with the way the cartridge is installed. So I used a strip of tape to hold the wire in place on the side of the cartridge compartment (it had been loose and flopping around), and it works fine now.
just finished taking mine apart 3hrs!!! ok cartridge not moving cause there's a little clip that's attached to a biger clip that's attached to the metal long rod in which the cartridge moves on top of got loose from the belt or just came of from the bigger clip.
now the little clip on mine came of and luckily i found it inside the printer.
1-took out about 10 screws to take cover off.(some sides snap off after removing screws)
2- remove 4-5 screws on top which holds a metal long slim frame on TOP of cartridge.
3- remove 2-3 screws from left side (facing back of printer) from the metal thin "ROD" on which the cartridges slide on top of.
4- lift up that rod and slide cartridge to left, mine didn't came out completely but enough to be able to work behind it.
5- if the little clip came off (and hopefully u found it)then reattach it to the belt.
6- take out the belt from right side, connect it again to the little clip, reconnect the little clip to the big clip, put back belt, big clip etc.
7- u have to play around a little to figure out how the clips go together and where exactly the belt goes.
GOOD LUCK cause i had 2 figure it out solo but finally finished w/ hands full of ink!!!
That's the "encoder strip" which tells helps the printer cartridges know where they are. It runs the length of the printer and runs through the cartridge carrier. There should be some places to attach it on either side of the printer, although you they may be difficult to reach without opening the printer by removing some screws.
